Article posted in: Diet & Nutrition Video Experts’ Corner

Our #VeggieSexy series continues, this week with a look at how fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut, pickled beets and kimchi can add zest to your regular meals. Watch as Nutrisystem’s Mandi Knowles shows how delectable—and unlimited—fermented vegetables can serve as the perfect compliments to every day meals, especially Nutrisystem’s burger.



Mandi Knowles: Fermented foods are all the rage right now. They’re filled with probiotics for a healthy digestive system, and they enhance your immunity, and because it’s so popular we’re not limited to just plain old sauerkraut anymore.

They also have beet-flavored sauerkraut and also Korean kimchi, which is a spicier version of a fermented food. They go great with or on top of your Nutrisystem burger. We’re going to choose the beet-flavored version. That just kicks it up a little notch.

To get your Nutrisystem burger ready for this awesome topping, start by unwrapping it. Wrap the burger in a paper towel and put it in the microwave on high for one-and-a-half minutes. When it’s done, let the hamburger sit in the microwave for one minute.
